there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path
outbreak and the action the fda just took. it is all happening now patti ann: get ready for political fireworks. president obama right now on his way to las vegas where he is expected to unveil his plan for immigration reform. this one-day after a bipartisan group of senators laid out their own proposal. hello, everyone, i'm patti ann browne in for jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the president's plan expected to mirror much of the senator's blueprint but some key differences could spark a fierce debate. molly henneberg is live at the white house with more. those differences, molly, what are they? >> reporter: hi, jon. the white house says the president believes the senate framework is very good, as a quote, cause for hope but there isn't an actual piece of legislation yet so the white house is very careful not to comment too much what the president would would not like about it. there is a may be a key difference the president may want a faster path to citizenship than the by partisan senate group may want. the white house is not clear how much border security the president would want
mince interviews would a big win for president obama and secretary clinton. they got great pr out of it. joining us from washington is senior political analyst brit hume. yesterday i you told chris wallace that you think hillary clinton should not be described as that great secretary of state. why? >> well, first of all, it's no, not easy to be a great secretary of state. foreign policy is a province really of the president. the secretary of state is the person who is his emissary and he is expected to direct the diplomats to carry it out. so that's point one. point 2 is, that she has worked very hard. she has traveled all over the place. set some record, some 112 countries. the list of achievements that can be attributed to her is not long and is not major. i mean, how well is the reset with russia worked out which she was very much involved in starting? how are things between arabs and israelis? closer to peace than before? how about iran? north carolina? their nuclear weapons programs. have they been retarded, held back, halted? no, i don't think so. so you look around for a clinton

they'd be paid higher wages and that would be a problem working on its self. as far as political situation i don't think this is a magic pill for republicans i don't think lit of them are fooling them selfs into thinking that. as far as obama wanting to pass it i'm curious bit. for four years he didn't raise a finger on this and in 2007 he help that had fragile bill at the time. >> bill: right. >> the preacher of the polls he didn't have to run again. fox news poll, 66% of americans, two-thirds support a pathway to citizenship. 66%. 17% say send illegals back home. 13% want to guest worker program for them. any president, sitting president, particularly a liberal guy is going to say i'm going to drive the train. >> all right. >> here is what -- . >> there is no john mccain is no liberal. >> wait a minute. wait a minute. stop this train. don't forget this was blocked under president bush, a republican this is blocked by a vote, by the far right. >> and far left. >> demonize every immigrant as some kind of threat to america. >> attacks came from both lines and will come from both a

movement in american politics. their entire indictment of barack obama is, he's mean! that's pathetic. >> right. >> are you serious? >> yes, she is serious, ron. we just saw one of our fellow conservatives talking about the president's plan to outlaw fox news. actually all the president pointed out and i'm quoting was that if a republican member of congress is not punished by fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with a democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it. which i don't know, ron, sounds pretty obvious to me, but are you also losing sleep at night because you're afraid the president wants to take away your fox news and your guns? >> you know, i'm very happy to come on msnbc and say thank god for fox news. the fact of the matter is without fox news we'd still think that benghazi, that that attack, that terrorist attack happened because of a video. without katherine and special report and the hard news people. by the way, they have more hard news people than msnbc, cnn, and everybody else -- >> sorry, ron, ron, ron, i accept your analysis on b
to change things. first, i think that this is good enough on policy grounds, putting politics aside to get it done. but if politics enters in, certainly republicans ought to look at november and realize that we've got to do better to broaden our base. >> if president obama in his speech tomorrow -- i have no idea what he's going to say. but if he tries to take credit for it, tries to lord over it, does that help or hurt your coalition? >> it hurts. it hurts, it certainly would poison the well, i think, with a lot of republicans. the truth is over the past four years, the president hasn't done much on this topic, in fact, you know, he talked about comprehensive reform, but he would never get beyond the unions who didn't want a temporary worker plan. so if the president is supportive, that's one thing that's good, but i think that having the senate lead on this is even better, far better. >> why now? bsds besides the election. we're worried about tax reform. jobs and unemployment. this is catapulted to the front of the line. why now do you think? >> well, big items like this. and this is a b
at a bipartisan manner when acting in government. >> and here is the other striking political moment. john mccain explains what he thinks will be necessary to pass this bill, including what he calls the leadership of president obama. let's listen to this. >> i am confident the majority of both houses, led by the president of the united states, who made this a major campaign issue, that we will succeed. but we're not going to get everybody on board. >> steve kornacki, nothing provprove s more strongly than that, that elections do have consequences. >> i can't help but think with john mccain, you're looking at a protection of legacy there. his reputation as a maverick was a bit over sold, what it really reflects, the guy is a sore loser, we saw it in the wake of the 2002 election. he was a very conservative member of the senate who happened to lose to george w. bush and took out all the grudges of george w. bush, then he was a mavericky liberal. went back to the right, now you have a guy here his term is going to be up in 2016. he will be 80 years old. this is an issue he really cares about and
spouses. because that's where in politics a lot of times the real bitterness lingers. and, you know, bill clinton has had a harder time forgiving the president than hillary clinton has. and michelle obama i think has had a harder time burying the hatchet than president obama has. this was a very tough race in 2008. but what is interesting is that they seem to have some chemistry in that interview. it wasn't a kind of formal stiff -- >> it was pretty smooth, pretty natural. >> they had a connection with each other that was important for the country to see. >> all right, jonathan alter, great to have you with us. thank you so much. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. and rachel maddow of the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> good evening, and thank you. >> you bet. >> thanks to you at home for staying with us this hour. the 50th state in the united states is of course hawaii. 49th state admitted the year before, alaska. so those were 49 and 50. those are the last two states admitted to the union in 1958 and 1959. what was the last state admitted before then? before alaska and hawaii
kids safe. >> there are few things historically speaking that are seen as bigger political lifts in washington than immigration reform or than gun reform. but just eight days into this second term, the obama administration is working actively to accomplish both of these things simultaneously. today president obama and vice president biden met with police chiefs and local sheriffs from around the country, including police chiefs from newtown, connecticut, aurora, colorado, and oak creek, wisconsin, all of which have endured major mass shootings just within the past six months. vice president biden also held a roundtable discussion on gun reform in richmond, virginia on friday. he had the homeland secretary and health secretary with him there. president obama himself made a high profile reference to gun reform in his inauguration speech last week. other cabinet members, including the attorney general, have been making their own news on moving forward on gun reform, mental health reform, background checks. the administration, in other words, doing everything they can to not only mov
commentary on special report. >> you didn't hear it on 60 minutes but president obama like many a president before him is unhappy with the press. in a separate weekend interview with the liberal political journal the new republic he grumbled about fox news and rush limbaugh. nothing unexpected there. he explained reporters generally in an effort to be impartial treat democrats and republicans as equivalent. they fail to note that one side is trying to do what is right and we haven't seen that kind of attitude on the other side. never mind of course the president at that moment was being interviewed by one of his campaign donors and supporters who is the owner of the new republic. never mind that he basically whistled up 60 minutes on short notice to sit down with him and his secretary of state for an interview could have been described as just how great is the relationship is between you two? i must have missed a friendly interview 60 minutes did with president bush or secretary of state colin powell or condoleezza rice. you say mr. bush would never have offered one. it is true if he did he
biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. the irs is going after political groups hiding behind the social welfare label. >> jennifer: here is what we know when it comes to gun safety in congress. president obama wants gunun safety legislation. house republicans don't like president obama, but house republicans do like police officers. so with that in mind today, president obama invited 13 police chiefs and sheriffs to the white house to discuss gun violence. >> if law enforcement officials who are dealing with this stuff every single day can come to some basic consensus, congress will be paying at attention to them and we'll be able to make progress. >> jennifer: progress that will be novel, but if the senate can move ahead with immigration reform, i say anything is possible. joining me now is democratic strategist donnie fowler. welcome back. >> good to be here. >> jennifer: good policy to have the chiefs and sheriffs come and make the pitch on gun safety. >> there is no more credibility. >> jennifer: i totally agree. >> they are certainly the ones that th
,944. connell: getting close. thank you. president obama getting set to unveil his plan for immigration reform. he will have that later in the day from las vegas. haley barbour joins us now. the politics of this have been really talked about a lot. in fact, we talked about it earlier this hour. let me start with the economics of immigration reform. a number of ceos have told us that they would like to see this in the perspective of, hey, let's get some highly skilled immigrants in here that will help the economy. that will help us to get us turned around. your views are what? >> there is no question if we follow what is good economic policy for america we will have immigration reform. it will allow more skilled and unskilled foreign workers to come into the united states. we need the labor. if you look at the labor participation rate in the united states, it is almost at a record low for the percentage of adults who are actually working or trying to get a job. only about 58%. if you are going to grow your economy, you have to have enough workers and we do not right now. connell: we are behind
a latte will ya, please? >>> hi. we're back here at the table digesting president obama's big immigration speech in nevada and a couple of things that struck me. you know, one, i think we all are aware of the basic sort of political contours of this. historic losses cost the republican party the election. that could harm them for decades to come from something republican party leaders i think all realize has to happen here. can they get the rank and file to go along? i was checking twitter in the break that caught my attention. one of the leaders in the house, one out leaders of the conservative movement who helped kill immigration reform in 2006, 2007 is steve king from iowa. he's had some pretty harsh things to say about immigrants in the years and now an open senate seat in iowa thanks to the retirement of tom harkin and the point of questions asking luke in the last segment was, there is a difference of republicans running statewide where there is a real stigma to be a nativist and republicans running in the safely republican districts where the biggest threat is a challenge of the ri

not to, and so president obama moved quickly with his dream proposals. >> so we never got that detailed plan from marco rubio to address the problem of kids who are brought here illegal. a big opportunity for marco rubio to show political skills, he is now the emissary to conservative republicans in the house and conservative news media to make the case that this is not amnesty, that this is an acceptable proposal that they could embrace, and if he manages to do that, that will be a great achievement on his part for a pretty junior senator. >> thanks very much. susan page, chris, thanks both. joining me now for more on the immigration debate, minnesota senator amy, member of the joint economic committee. this is a big deal economically potentially, senator, because as business people are telling you and as i'm hearing from business people, college presidents and others as i'm sure you've heard this is a major economic component where we're training young people from around the world giving them ph.d.s and then kicking them out. >> exactly. that's why senator hatch, senator rubio, and se
